A gap year or volunteer work in India is a
true rewarding experience. Sankalp Volunteer
Society (NGO) offers various volunteer
projects and gap year opportunities in
India. All volunteer program placements
involve volunteers transferring their skills
and knowledge to benefit the local
communities. Volunteers can opt to
participate for the programs ranging from 1
week to 12 months duration.
The volunteer programs
are located in both rural and urban
areas of India. Though we are working in
the most needful and remote areas, these
areas are as well linked with famous
places of public interest and tourist
spots. All volunteer project locations
have diverse customs, culture, climate
and layouts with unique geographical
conditions for volunteers.
This is most liked option while it gives you
the unique ability to combine volunteer work
with an action-packed adventure tour. It
enables you to give something back to the
people and environment of your host country.
The combination of volunteer work & travel
programs are a unique opportunity for anyone
wanting to travel and experience the world.

Summer Volunteer Program, July 2013
I signed up for the Summer Volunteer Program 2013 and I must say I had the time of my life!
If you're feeling doubtful, Sankalp is absolutely a legitimate organisation.
It is exactly what you're looking for if you're looking to put your heart out to volunteer and at the same time discover beautiful India.
I've chosen Sankalp because the management were extremely responsive and helpful.
I'm glad I've picked Sankalp because the entire program was very well-structured from A-Z.
I did the Street Kids project for the first two weeks. We taught them English and Maths. In school, the children are very bright and enthusiastic learners!
They love coming to school and you'll be so motivated to teach them. Overall, it was a beautiful experience!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for you who want to have a lifetime experience by volunteering + tour. I'm definitely going back.

Project for Street Kids, June 2013
A beyond epic experience! I would highly recommend this to anyone!
I made the decision to come alone to India after finishing a placement year at University and it was one of the best decisions of my life!
I was part of the Street Kids program for 6 weeks. The program is a fantastic experience! Teaching children between the ages 3 - 12 English and Maths which is extremely rewarding!
I had a small group of children and in 6 weeks saw a big chance in the children. All in all this is a life changing experience!
You get to experience a completely different country and culture. You get the chance to appreciate how lucky you are to have basic things!
You will no doubt meet some amazing people! It's value for money and I would encourage anybody to make a life changing decision!
Orphanage, Street Kids & Teaching English,
I had the pleasure of working in 3 programs.
So I had a good variety of experience. The
Orphanage was difficult emotionally, but
after the first week, I was hooked to all
the lovely children. Those children have
great potential, so any & all gift/
supplies/ treats anything would be greatly
appreciated by the kids. The Government
school was another fabulous experience. I
loved working with so many students & all of
the staff was very friendly. The street
children program occupied about 9 weeks of
my time. All of those kids are very smart
and are ready to learn. I look forward to
the day when new school is built…I will be
back to be a full time teacher!!!! The
staff at the Sankalp was great and it was
fun to be around them. I will definitely
recommend Sankalp to others.
Work and Travel, Nov 2011
This volunteering program has been an amazing experience for myself. The
people I have shared this one month with have been very accepting, very kind
and lot of fun. The accommodation is located in a very nice area of Jaipur.
The condition of my room and facilities was very good and the food that was
supplied was extremely nice and unique. Both coordinators have been helpful
to me, if faced with any issue or if I have had a question, they have
answered it appropriately. The Street kid program was something I really
enjoyed being part of. The kids were wonderful to teach and a lot of fun.
The school was very well maintained and I was particularly impressed with
the treatment and attention that the kids were given. I
would recommend Sankalp to anyone interested in travel and volunteering.
Work and Travel, March 2012
This was my first big travel experience
on my own. My parents were a little worried
at first but as soon as I arrived at the
house and emailed them that the pickup at
the airport, the hotel and the drive to
Jaipur all went very smoothly and there was
upwards of twenty volunteers in the house
they realized I was going to be very safe
and have a great time! That is exactly what
happened. The house is beautiful, in a gated
community where you always feel safe. Lunch
and Dinner are great and the cook is lovely.
Amita and Pranay the couple who run this
organization are kind and always would fix
something if it wasn’t right and offered us
advice on travel and anything else. The trip
is worth every penny because you do and see
so much. I strongly advise you to choose
this program because
you will not forget it :)

Summer Program, July 2012
It was one of the best experience of my life!!!!! I strongly recommend
Shake Hands to everybody! I took part in the Summer Program. I worked for
two weeks in the Street Children Education Program. After that, we travelled
for one week and we visited amazing places such as Agra, Amritsar,
Dharamsala and we went trekking on the Himalaya. For the first 2 weeks I
taught Math and English to 3 to 5 years old street kidz. All the programs
are well structured and organized! The program coordinator (Asha) helped me
to talk to the pupils, who knew only few words in English. Dealing with
very young students is not easy but is extremely rewarding and is a very
intense emotion! The travel period was well organized and we did exactly
what was stated in the program on the website. There are no words that can properly describe this experience !!
